The University of Hong Kong Libraries is providing a comprehensive repository for research data and other forms of scholarly outputs now. DataHub powered by Figshare is the cloud platform for storing, citing, sharing, and discovering research data and all scholarly outputs. It collects, preserves, and provides stable, long-term global open access to a wide range of research data and scholarly outputs created by HKU researchers and RPG students in the course of their research and teaching.
FAIR stands for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. Data that meet these principles are more optimal for reuse and discoverability and in turn increase your research’s exposure. DataHub is fully supported by the FAIR data principle will give the credit for all your research outputs. Data that is uploaded to DataHub is marked for indexing in Google Scholar and Google Dataset Search. This helps improve the exposure of your research. We will track usage statistics, including views, downloads, citations, and Altmetrics.
There are lots of journal data sharing policies that require the datasets which are necessary to replicate their study’s findings, must be made available to editors and referees at the time of submission, and must be shared with the scientific community as a condition of publication. Some research funders, such as the Research Councils UK, require data availability statements to be included in publications.

DataHub supports the data openly available that issues datasets with DOIs, it provides the confidential peer-review functions and fulfills the FAIR data principle after the dataset published. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the journal data policies.
